    Mugsy, how far are you with your Brilliance? I've also wondered what will happen at 1 million. I'm currently at just under 797,000 at level 17,428.

    Jeff Vincent, what county do you live it? I'm originally from NYC, but lived in Dutchess County before moving to Northern Connecticut.

    Paul, no it wasn't me. I usually play under my own name. But honestly, 2000 points in 7 hours is very reasonable. I've been clocking myself at just under 1000 points an hour with absolutely no cheating whatsoever. I do use coins when I get stuck but am finding I don't use as many as I used to. I was definitely not this fast when I first started and got whooped over and over. But I love to challenge myself.

    And by the way, I do have a life. I'm married, run a business, and work on average 10 hours a day. Wordscapes is my de-stressor.

    I still don't understand how the tournaments work. It seems like they each have 100 people, but I don't know why people are grouped the way they are.

    I honestly think most of the posters here complaining about cheating don't read the comments other than their own. Wordsmithwick is absolutely correct. It's been explained time and again that people are usually not coming out of nowhere; they're either out of range or avoiding ads.

    That is absolutely not cheating!

    I've been playing for about 4 months and have gotten very fast. The first few weeks I played I did look up words, but haven't done that in months. The longer you play this game the more times you've seen the puzzles and the quicker you get.

    If it ruins it for you that some people are faster, just keep playing and increase your speed instead of complaining. It should absolutely not take the fun out of the tournament if you don't win. If it does, you should probably do something else.

    Carl Graves, that's very impressive! As of right now I'm at Level 11,839 and Brilliance of 535,490. But I only have 26,570 coins to your 93,663. I use coins only about 1 every 15 rounds or so when I'm really stuck. I'd love to play against you in a tournament sometime!

    Yessssss! I'm in also, if it's okay. You're right, this is a whiner's forum.
    Meet you at the new place. 🤗👍

    Wordsmith, I remember that post and was surprised that they didn't work for me. I was fairly new at that point so don't know if there was a dictionary change. (I'm still waiting for the opportunity to try del and eld.)

    Doole, why in the world would anyone go to such fantastic lengths as you suggest to earn a few coins?? Some players are legitimately that fast and no doubt get pleasure (as I do) in beating their own scores. I'm in awe of the deluded reasoning some people on this forum display.

    Doole, there is no way a person who needs to look up words can get 1000 points in one hour. It is very possible however by playing fair. Some players are just faster at solving -- they're not cheating.

    I think my top score in words per puzzle is about 30. I'm amazed about the 70!!

    Kingofzero, that's quite an impressive run!! And congratulations, Shell, on your new peak.

    I only got to about 5,000 or so this weekend because it seemed like everyone in my tournament quit at around the 3,000 mark. It's not as much fun when the competition's not there. I would love to be matched up with some of you high scorers (including you too, Robb)!

    To Sandy and Anonymous....I'm surprised you both mention reaching an end of levels. I thought there was no longer a limit. I'm currently at level 9032 and thought it was the same for everyone. What's going on?

    I sure have missed a lot in just a few days!! First, thanks for the very kind words Shell, Opal, od1, and Manco. I've had an unusually stressful week and am pleasantly unwinding here as I'm sure many others are as well.

    I hope everyone enjoys this weekend's tournament! 🤗

    Charlie, it has never really bothered my husband. It's now after 2:00 AM and he's next to me still watching blues performances on YouTube. Truthfully, I can solve roughly 1000 points in not much more than an hour, so spread out over the weekend it's not that much. When I first started playing a few months ago it took me much longer, but now I can look at the letters and the words pop out almost immediately. Before Wordscapes it was logic puzzles online and before that cryptograms. This is just my latest obsession.

    I am somewhat of a geek, though, always on the computer if not on my phone. Plus, we gave up our TV a couple of years ago because it was wasting so much time. In any event, no marital discord so far. 😎

    Manco, I think it was between 11,000 and 12,000. It was one of those death matches where both of us were determined to win. 🤣🤣 BTW I lost.

    To Anonymous, it is ABSOLUTELY possible for faster players to hit those numbers.

    od1, I was referring to all of the posts accusing people of cheating while they're playing in airplane mode.

    Charlie, the post by LC wasn't mine. I know the initials are the same but I've played in Airplane mode (only when I've been traveling) and know that it makes you appear like you've come out of nowhere. But I still don't think it's cheating. 😊

    od1, Manco, Charlie, such a pleasure to enjoy your hilarious posts rather than the ever repeated whining about cheaters. 🤣 Please keep it up. And the geography bits are fascinating.

    To Pearl and Anonymous: What is happening is that folks are playing all the while you're also playing, but they're offline. For example, yesterday I was traveling with my husband and for a good 50 minutes we were driving through a mountainous area and had no reception. When we were finally able to pick up a signal it would have appeared that all the points I had accrued in that time came out of nowhere. Which is obviously not the case.

    This is not cheating!!!!

    Opal, yes, I received the following email after I ran out of levels. It seemed as if the "bonus" levels kept going on and on so I wondered how many there were..

    Hi there,

    There are no longer an end to levels so you will not have to worry about running out for the tournament!

    Kind Regards,

    I'm now at level 6546.

    If you haven't noticed yet, there is no more limit to Wordscape levels. According to PF you can now play forever! 😎

    What Badassketcase said. I suspect there's not as much cheating as some people claim. It takes MUCH longer to cheat than it does to just solve by yourself. You really can't win at this by cheating!!! If you've got to look up the word you're taking too long.

    I see 11 in the tournament I'm in, including the number 2 spot. Maybe the PF staffers have a lot of time on their hands.

    @Anonymous, you can uninstall the game and reinstall it again to keep playing. Also, you inspired me to time myself. I completed a round of 16 games in 13 minutes, earning 72 bonus words and using 1 clue.

    This is not to brag but to reinforce the fact that speed does not equate to cheating. And this is my third time around (uninstalling and reinstalling). I was most definitely not solving this quickly when I started. It just takes practice.

    @Manco, I was totally thrashed a few weeks ago by GusseyedUp. The adrenaline rush was AWESOME!

    It's much more fun than hoping someone will catch up.

    I also wish I could post a video. Sometimes I solve in seconds...I think my record was 7 seconds but there were only about 5 words. I've gotten 5000 points in a day with no problem. There would be no way to look up the words from a cheat site that quickly. In the last 8 weeks I've come in 1st every week in the tournaments I've played except for one week when I came in 2nd.

    I liken the speed in solving this way....when you first learn to read you pick out individual letters. Eventually, you see the entire word. It just takes practice. Now I can see entire words almost immediately. I'm sure that's how all the fast players are working as well.

    Stacey, never mind. I just figured it out. I never realized you could do that. 🤗

    Stacey, I feel very stupid, because maybe I've missed something. How do you go back and redo a puzzle you've already done?

    Wow, what a great tournament!  Kudos to Gussyedup for a thrilling ride!  He or she is one fast solver.  I had come in first place for the past few weeks but this was great fun trying to keep up.  I was sorry I couldn’t play much on Sunday but I have a feeling I would have been left in the dust even if I had.  Very impressive score — over 11,000.  Way to go, Gussyedup!!

    Some of these posts amaze me!! I've been playing off and on all day and have over 5000 points since last night. I've gotten these points fair and square. There are some terrific players here who are very fast and it's been an awesome race. To accuse them of cheating is ridiculous!! It takes longer to cheat at this game than it is to solve legitimately.

    If you're slow at solving just keep practicing. That's the way to get faster. And don't assume that because someone is fast at solving that he or she is cheating.

    KathyB the coins come in really handy if you get stuck on a word. If you tap on the light bulb icon on the right, the first letter of an unsolved word will be filled in. Your coins pile will be depleted by 100 coins each time you ask for a hint but used strategically, can really up your game. I find that knowing the first letter of the word gives it to me much more quickly. But don't get in the habit of asking for hints unless you really are stuck -- the coins can get used up really fast at 100 a pop.

    Hope you're doing well! 😊

    KathyB your points will last (unless you use them) until you finish all levels. Then you can uninstall and reinstall the game and start again. But you'll have to start from scratch to earn new points. I tend to accumulate a lot of points but I don't think it's cheating to use them for a hint when I get stuck.

    Sorry you've been bedridden. I've had the flu myself and have been playing a lot as well.

    Why in the world would you assume that getting 3000 points in one day means you have to be cheating?!? Any good player can do that easily.

    Anna Belle Black, that's very impressive. I don't do quite that well but I'm much faster than when I started.

    The fact that some people solve quickly doesn't necessarily mean that they're cheating with the online word unscrambler. It takes longer to enter the letters and then copy the correct words than it does to just find the words yourself.
